Beef and Dairy Protein Increase Post-Exercise Muscle Protein Synthesis Equally

The legendary ancient Olympian Milo of Croton was a six-time wrestling champion at the Ancient Olympic Games in Greece. According to legend, one secret to his success and great strength was that he ate 20 pounds of beef every day. Most modern bodybuilders consume beef, but get much of their protein intake from whey protein supplements. Nicholas Burd and colleagues from Maastricht University in the Netherlands found no difference between consuming 30 grams of beef or dairy protein on muscle protein synthesis or protein signaling following weight training. Protein synthesis was slightly faster in the dairy group during the first two hours of recovery, but was equal after five hours. (American Journal Clinical Nutrition, 102: 828-836, 2015)
